Performing with The O'Jays
2018 has seen Natasha land a weekly radio show with BBC Berkshire where she DJs live on-air every Thursday evening. She thoroughly enjoys her time on-air, sharing music, talking about life, and having a good laugh. Alongside her radio show she wrote and released her much anticipated this album ‘My Next Chapter’ – which flew up a host of UK charts, hailing it the best-received album Natasha has ever written. She received support from Tony Black Burn, Jazz FM, and Magic FM to name a few.
Career highlights so far for Natasha have been opening up for The O’Jays at the Theatre Royal London, supporting Shalamar at the world-famous London Palladium to a sold-out crowd.
Natasha performed in Osaka, Japan with ‘A Hundred Birds Orchestra’ and has been a dream come true for Natasha. She comments “myself with over 35 musicians is the stuff of dreams, traveling out there now 3 times to perform has really opened my eyes to a different way of performing. Everybody working in sync together to create magic is the best feeling in the world.”
Natasha organised a virtual evening performance during the 2020 lockdown in aid of a local charity. She chose St Michael’s Hospice (North Hampshire) Ark Centre as it is a very personal charity to her. The virtual performance was hosted on Facebook Live and Instagram Live – hundreds of viewers and supporters visited her Just Giving page and over 1200 individuals donated. By the end of the performance, Natasha had reached 187% of her donations target goal and made well over £1800. She was incredibly humbled by the number of donations and comments that were posted during her performance and was so pleased she was able to give back to a charity so close to home.
During the 2020 Covid-19 pandemic, Natasha used her time in lockdown to let her creativity flow naturally and took advantage of the extra time she had on her hands. Her creativity flourished and Natasha was able to develop and work on some new future projects. For the first time in years, she was able to focus on self-care and projects at a comfortable speed. Natasha felt it was an important time to stay productive, but let her mind relax and to chill as well. She was able to create future plans on how to move forward, especially through the pandemic and coming out of lockdown.
